Taietzel Ticalos (b. 1986) is a visual artist based in Bucharest, Romania. Her artistic practice investigates the transmutation of reality into the virtual space and contemplates the development of digital narrations. She focuses on sexual objectification, social media as consumer media, digital performance and digital reenactment. Between 2014-2016 she coordinated with Gabriela Mateescu the mobile group Nucleu 0000, a flexible collective of young Romanian artists. Since 2019 they manage together the digital art platform spam-index.com.

Other unrequested info:
► Taietzel Ticalos is not my real name (but any Romanian speaker would know that).
The name comes from the id used (since the beginning of my user experience) on most of my accounts and plays with an old Romanian online habit of turning diacritics into 2-letters, instead of actually using them.
I'm constantly asked if the name is written Taietzel Ticalos or Tăietzel Ticălos. *[write it as you wish, just keep the same order for the letters]
► I don't have an art degree... *[drum roll]* ...but, hey, you don't need one to use the Internet!
► I've made almost all of my works while having a full or part-time job.
► I'm a horizontal artist. *[my bed is my studio, baby!]
► I'm frequently collaborating with Cutra.
► I have a demon-cat named Click and she has her own Telegram sticker pack.
